We are currently in the process of creating a dentist office for our dramatic play area. The children built a table out of cardboard where they can lay out their “dentist tools” including tooth brushes, tooth paste, a tool to polish teeth, a tool to rinse, a face mask, gloves, timer for proper brushing, and an x-ray camera. Thank you Simon for bringing in some tools to add to our dentist office!
The children created many signs for the office!
We have a welcome sign:
(Welcome to Dr. Teeth’s Dentist Office)
We have a sign for the tool cabinet:
This sign helps patients who may feel afraid of the dentist:
(Oh no! Don’t you worry!)
We even have a special dentist comic for patients to read while waiting for their appointment:
(What is a toothbrush doing?)
Here is our x-ray machine:
The children created a giant model of teeth:
